As people age, maintaining their independence becomes increasingly important, and losing it is a top concern among seniors. Despite this, some golden agers require assistance with activities of daily living. Assisted living provides a solution that allows seniors to receive the necessary help while still maintaining their independence.
The hugely successful Helderberg Manor Retirement Village in Somerset West, a sought-after collection of houses and apartments, recently opened its Wellness Centre managed by well-known leaders in high-quality healthcare and wellness solutions, Medwell SA. Their aim is to meet their residents’ every need.
HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Says Dejane Ehlers Steyl, Head of Marketing at Devmark Property Group: “At Helderberg Manor, our assisted living suites offer a range of services, including a concierge, medication management, assistance with activities of daily living, housekeeping, meals, laundry, transportation, as well as social programmes and activities. We have a dedicated resident liaison, Estelle Borman, who ensures that they offer social activities and interaction for all residents.
Morning tea is served with cake daily at 11am, which creates a great atmosphere for socialisation between residents. The staff is available 24/7 to provide safety, care, and support, and residents are encouraged to personalise their new home to make it feel comfortable.”
When residents move in, an individual service plan is created to meet their specific needs. “Whether one needs assisted living or frail care, Medwell SA specialises in the implementation and management of holistic healthcare services within retirement and lifestyle estates with the emphasis on a proactive approach and assisting residents to maintain an independent lifestyle for as long as possible, with or without supportive care services.”
